In a Reuters dispatch on June 18, Democratic leaders in Congress concede that voters are angry with them for not doing enough to end the Iraq War. They might have added that voters are also angry at them for not impeaching the president or even for moving on Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney (H Res. 333).
“I understand their disappointment. We raised the bar too high,” bleats Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid (D-NV). No Harry. You didn’t raise the bar too high. You ducked under the bar, when it came time to act to defund the war.
“We can only do so much,” whines House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). No, Nancy. The problem is that you have done so little. Next to nothing really.
